Meats, dairy products and vegetables are linked to an increased risk of causing food-borne illness if they are stored at unsafe temperatures. 

Researchers found that 99% of the dairy products and 98.5 % of vegetables were stored at unsafe temperatures. 97.4% of the meats were stored at unsafe temperatures.  

If perishable foods are left outside for more than two hours they become risky for consumption.
